Why is WorldBank.Org Spamming Users to join FingerHut?

Why is WorldBank.Org Spamming Users to join FingerHut?

Umm….

The World Bank Group has set two goals for the world to achieve by 2030:

  • End extreme poverty by decreasing the percentage of people living on less than $1.90 a day to no more than 3%
  • Promote shared prosperity by fostering the income growth of the bottom 40% for every country

The World Bank is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. We are not a bank in the ordinary sense but a unique partnership to reduce poverty and support development.

Oh and they forgot their last point… to get people to sign up for FingerHut.

    Tiffany, I just read an email that had that same paragraph at the bottom of the message. I was wondering if you know anything else about this?

      I don’t know why, I never heard of either of these people and their blasting from @gmail.com@paypal.com too. This is very annoying and filled up my inbox all the way. Very mad.

    I got one offering me a 50$ sams club gift card. It had the same paragraph at the bottom. This site was the one and only result when I searched for Ruchestty Partner in google.
